9:22 am
deception had gone on for so long. the report also notes that over the years park and rec employees consistently requested, without success, that their superiors address the issue. while the report concludes that the fund was intentionally kept a secret, the a.g.'s office found no evidence that any of the money was stolen. it simply sat unused for years, a reserve of money with no purpose. in the newsroom, charles clifford kron 4 a new report answers the question: which professions boast the lowest unemployment rate? in 2012 those jobs were in the health care, finance and social service sectors -- and all require a lot of education and training. the lowest un employment rate was among physicians and surgeons. on the other end of the spectrum jobs in construction, sales, and transportation sustained the greatest job losses. along with telemarketers who had the highest rate of unemployment. the list left out highly specialized professions. >> 43. light winds.
